Junior Open Championships (Seedings and Schedule)

Post by Will Deave » Thu, 17 May 2001 07:31:13


Hey Junior ultimate players and fans,

Check out the UPA juniors web page for the latest on tournament seedings and
schedule for this weekend in Nashville.

Can Paideia continue it's streak of tournament victories?  Can Amherst
capture the UPA Juniors crown in both the Open and Girls' Divisions?  Will
our northern neighbors from St. John's be the first UPA champions from
Canada (perhaps snaking it from right in front of the UBC women or Furious
George)?  Who's going to pull the big upsets?  There are teams you never
heard of and the team that started our sport.
Get the scoop at

www.upa.org/championships/juniors

Go to the Open Championships link, and check out the Girls link too while
you're at it.

Thanks to Shirley Wu of Brown for the website work!

    For any of you who know me, you also know that when I shit talk I mean
business.  My brother will be representing the Madtown in his second Junior
Natties as a senior and team leader.  All you other pedialyte drinkin'
Ultimate players, better come for real if you want to match up to Gigo and
Ted from Middleton, who are looking to do some damage and score some upsets
in their last tourney at the high school level.

Midwest Express, represent.

To talk a little sh!t back, Paideia High School (where my younger
brother plays and where 18/19ths of the Brown A-team played) beat
Midwest Express badly at Amherst two weeks ago, to the tune of something
like 15-3. I'll be there in Nashville watching, so I'll get to see it in
person, but I expect Paideia roll to the finals and there will be met
with a great game by Amherst HS.  The first ever Nationals for Paideia
will be a party!

That 15-3 score would no doublt lend itself to Paideia's *** as a
team, but I have to interject that the reason the score was so lopsided was
because neither my bro Gigo or Ted were there to play.  Instead, the squad
sent mostly inexperienced players to get some skills before coming for real
in Nashville.  Don't count out the hispanic causin' panic from Middleton.
Mexico and the Los Valdivia always show up to play.

The opinions expressed in this article are the opinions of 'Happy"
alone.  Moses Rifkin and FOMCEC express no ill will towards Midwest
Express, Middleton, or Mr. Maldad.

    With Junior Natties wrapped up and Paideia beating Amherst in a long
game of attrition for the championship, the Ultimate world is abuzz with the
question "who was the Latin Callahan of the Junior world?"
For all who were unable to go and watch, but burn with the need to have the
question answered, this post will spell relief.
And as it turned out through hot playing and leadership by example,
R-O-L-A-I-D-S does not spell relief.  It is spelled R-O-D-R-I-G-O, as in
Rodrigo Valdivia.  The most electrifying hispanic Ultimate player to come
out of Middleton since his brother Hector three years ago, Rodrigo has
already sown seeds for what will surely be a bountiful harvest of breaks,
layouts, and skies.
Look for this years Junior Latin Callahan to represent at UW-Madison next
year, where he hopes to expand on his skills as a player, and as a player
(if ya know what I'm sayin').

In an unrelated thread, the Hat-Wearing Brown Younger Sibling Player of the
game award was given to Hunter "Butter-Throws" Alexander, a lefty handler
(bonus!) from Paideia who remained chill through the hot muggy day.
Peace.
